    Vehicle : Vectra-C

    Trim : SRi XP2 Nav

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2008

    Default OPELISE & OPC Part 1

    I am currently in the process of Opelising my Veccy XP2 and just thought i'd share my work and some pics. As it's an XP2 I thought i'd also give it the OPC touch as there was not too much more involved.

    Firstly the gear knob trim which was a straight forward swap....



    Then the lower steering wheel trim, again a straight swap.....



    Next was a job I was a little concerned about as I had no idea how the badge was attached on the steering wheel. My concerns were the airbag and cosmetically damaging the steering wheel whilst attempting to remove it with a screww driver....There were 13 small lugs attaching it behind, so it was a little awkward to say the least......


    Next I had to source something that looked as OEM as possible for the Opel look. I used some black leather and a 54mm Opel badge to do the job which I am very happy with.........




    and the final result...........



    I have ordered some blue dials with OPC and hope to fit in the coming weeks once they arrive. The exterior is in the process of Opelising and OPC'ing but still waiting on the bodyshop before fitting the front end parts, so will post more pics up when finished.

    will the "leather material" you have added affect the operation of the airbag in the event that it needs to deploy ????

    The airbag deploys from the larger outer circle.

    will also post to you, at minimal cost. Mine was around £20 iirc.

    Btw. How did you do your steering wheel centre badge?
